Industrial linear systems must be able to operate reliably over a long period of time - often with high working cycles and under critical conditions. To keep maintenance work and costs to a minimum, they should also be easy to assemble and replace if necessary. Based in Düsseldorf, ROLLON GmbH promises to deliver solutions that fully meet these requirements. Some forty years after it was founded, this globally operating company is now one of the leading end-to-end suppliers of linear technology solutions, offering one of the most comprehensive ranges of linear guides, telescopic rails and linear axes. It is now attending EMO Hannover 2019 to showcase its portfolio of modular linear solutions for automating industrial machinery. In addition to automatic machine doors and efficient motion concepts for workpiece handling systems - the ROLLON "Seventh Axis" for handling robots is taking center stage at the fair.
With this concept, ROLLON aims to considerably expand the operating range of industrial robots in the future. The solution has the entire robot move along a linear axis, which expands its operating range so it can perform tasks in several different places. Available in seven sizes, the shuttle system features a modular design and supports long distances and high dynamics. According to its makers, it can be easily integrated into existing scenarios and move any type of robot weighing up to 2,000 kg.
